    Hauppauge's Win-TV-HVR-1600 Unable to Search channels

    Hi there........

    I recently installed this Hauppauge's WinTV HVR 1600 version 6 card. After purchasing and and now I never really used or installed it to my motherboard.

    I followed the instructions provided int user's manual that came with the product but I am not able to search or tune up any channels at all. I have no idea how to fix this one. I have gone into the channel manager option and in the scan section and did the following procedure for searching the channels but all in vain.

    Is there anyone that knows how to do this or anyone who can point me in the right direction.

    Please provide me some reply regarding this.............

    hi there....
    i too bought it and had faced the same problem.........

    I recently fix mines. I mostly have what you are having. Check your tuner cable connection done properly or not. So if thats the problem then run the wizard again and you might have your solution.

    To explain you more I messed up with my ir blaster and also with my receiver and when I tried to run the wizard it did not show any kind of response or signal in the video or while just booting up livetv. So I restarted my PC and run the Beyond tv wizard again and it was showing video. Try this one too.
